After getting passed over time and time again for promotions, feeling disrespected and even invisible at times, Ivna Curi, knew that something needed to change.

She realized that she’d been taught to be a people pleaser – and that it wasn’t getting her what she wanted in life.

Ivna devoted herself to learning how to be more assertive. She ultimately got so good at it that she now helps misunderstood professionals speak up without coming across as rude or aggressive so that they can be taken seriously, respected and recognized.

On this episode of The Workplace Communication Podcast, Ivna shares her best tips on how you too can become more assertive.

🎙️ Defining elements of being assertive vs. aggressive

🎙️ Identifying and eliminating the assumptions that lead to conflict and resentment
